    I love the original Arkham-mobile.

    Huh. Size does matter. Go figure.

    I have no qualms if Reeves' batmobile has tank-like qualities. Place those front wheels inside the body and I'll be fine with the design.

    I'd prefer the cockpit to be further back, but other than that, I'd be cool with that look.

    So, I just got into Forza recently and realised something.

    The Porsche 917 would be a great base for the next batmobile. Make some modifications to it, maybe make the batwings slightly bigger, mess with the cockpit and other general cosmetics, you could have a pretty kick ass batmobile

    Not a fan of low bumpers.
    A base design like this is perfect. Similar to a design posted here before.

    Only problem is a speed bump would destroy it.

    Which is why I feel like I personally cannot go back to a fully sport car-based design after the Tumbler. Those big tires have a practical purpose. I'm happier with something sportier, but I feel like there is no going back and any decent Batmobile needs to have some more all-terrain militaristic elements going forward.

    Why does the Batmobile need to be "militarized" or designed for soldiers to fight on a desert battlefield? Gotham is a city and Batman doesn't spend a lot of time off-road.

    I want something more car-like but not something that looks like it could be destroyed by a speed bump. Something sleek, but that can endure, that looks menacing. [​IMG]

    Telltale and Arkham Asylum have the right idea.

    I feel like the best bet would be to use a sporty car as a baseline, but then add more military style elements to it like armor, higher suspension, maybe even a battering ram bat head like in the comics and so on. That way, it's the best of best worlds, like the Telltale game, as Invader Joker said.

    No one said designed for a desert battlefield. But given that Batman fights larger than life threats, above the regular criminal element, some urban warfare, military elements make sense. Something that can jump curbs, roadway obstructions, burning wrecks of police vehicles, etc. SWAT teams don't rely on regular patrol cars in such situations.

    The Tumbler was a Lamborghini model crossed with a Hummer! So they pretty much did this already :D

    I’ve been fortunate enough to drive a few sports and super cars around tracks in my life, and know how they handle, and how fragile they are.

    Trust me, if you want anything even remotely realistic for a tactical urban vehicle, throw any ideas of basing it on a sports car out of the window!

    It’s either aesthetics or verisimilitude. You can’t have both.

    Trouble is, this movie i feel will have a hint of the fantasy, but pretty much based in 'real' life... and you have to ask yourself, someone suffering with ptsd, on a mission to make amends and make his city safer... the costume is a disguise and an element of theatrics to allude to a myth but the car... it's, some called argue, gratuitous.

    however, it's batman, it's damn cool and needed.

    So, i feel like this batman will use a motor bike predominantly and i feel the bat mobile is literally for transport... nothing else. It needs to be untraceable and self destruct and easily replaced.. so ic an see the car being limited to a glorified cameo.

    The batmobile is also symbol of fear imo, batman doesn't have to sneak everywhere. When goons see the batmobile they instantly know what the deal is.
